View Full Version : Spraying the passenger cabin

30th Jan 2019, 08:58

I recently flew to from LHR to Sydney via Singapore (BA) and the cabin crew sprayed some kind of anti-bacterial(?) into the passenger cabin prior to us disembarking. I don't recall if it was in Singapore or in Sydney but I don't think it was both. I just wondered what that's all about. I've flown quite a lot, although mostly to the US and back and it's happened a handful of times but not often.

I understand that it's an attempt stop germs migrating to that destination country but surely it's a half-hearted attempt at best? Is the spraying mandated by the arrival country?

Many thanks in advance

It's not anti-bacterial - it's insecticide (https://www.cntraveler.com/stories/2016-02-19/why-flight-attendants-walk-airplane-aisles-with-bug-spray).

We obviously need to spray the forum to stop this infection spreading...

Very droll PDR1 :rolleyes: Yes, this topic is running in Spectators Balcony and since NineEighteen started that thread six minutes before this one, I am closing this. We try to keep topics in one place so that everyone can see all the other comments, no need to start two threads.
